    I watched SpawnWave took apart his switch and the battery seems to be secured by either glue or screws. Either way you Will need to take the main board off before able to start popping.

    What, really? It looked like it was just a pin connector. Damn.

    Not true, iFixit already did a teardown and the battery is easily removable. Stop providing fake news without sources. Thread reported.

    Yeah I've seen several tear downs and it always looks like that is the case.

    This is easy compare to some cellphones.
    The problem here would be finding a replaceable battery

    Glue is basically nothing, especially with something like an iOpener... I'm very glad the Switch is so easily repairable. It means out of warranty fixes shouldn't be too difficult, though they may be a touch expensive.

    Even if it's glued together, it's Nintendo.
    They will cheap out on it anyway.
